How you can help?
As a volunteer, you will assist in tasks necessary for the successful running of our brand new store, all under the direction and guidance of the manager. Our retail volunteers are the first point of contact for customers when they enter our stores and you will provide invaluable help by getting involved as much or as little as you like - from sorting out stock; putting your own stamp on the shop displays or getting trained to serve customers at the till.
When can you help?
We offer flexible opportunities throughout the week
Typical tasks include:
Engaging with customers and serving them in a helpful and friendly way
Promoting our campaigns and in store sales to customers
Working on window and shop displays
Keeping the store tidy, clean and well organised
Interacting with the general public
Communicating with shop managers, staff and fellow volunteers about what has sold and needs re-stocking
Honing your retail and cashier skills behind the till and taking payments
Promoting Gift Aid and sales campaigns
What are we looking for?
You don’t need any specific skills or experience to volunteer but a positive attitude and excellent customer service skills are key
Experience in retail would be desirable, but not necessary
How we will support you
We can offer you ‘taster’ sessions in order for you to see what volunteering with us will be like. Once you decide you wish to continue volunteering, we will ensure you are shown how to carry out each of the tasks and are fully trained in the jobs you do with guidance from the store manager. We will ensure that you familiarise yourself and comply with the Health and Safety Policy, Fire Procedure, Manual Handling, GDPR and any other training where appropriate.
What are the minimum requirements?
You need to have the physical ability to fulfil the requirements of the role including safe moving and handling of donations.
What you can get from volunteering:
A chance to work in a friendly team, make new friends and meet a diverse group of people
The time to develop your confidence and interpersonal skills
The ability to gain valuable retail work experience to add onto your CV and to learn new skills
Flexibility to fit with your lifestyle
